Brexit crisis - what's next for Theresa May?

Boris Johnson resigns as British foreign secretary

Theresa May and David Davis

His resignation this afternoon from the Foreign Office, in response to May's Soft Brexit plan agreed at Chequers on Friday, and following the resignation of Brexit secretary David Davis last night, ends a period of political prevarication we haven't seen since Boris Johnson couldn't make up his mind about whether to back Leave or Remain at the European Union referendum.

Numerous prime minister's supporters believe she would win a contest and cement her authority; but May would face a leadership challenge if she lost, with Johnson among the potential candidates. By staying in position, he can also argue that his presence in government is a demonstration of its credibility on Brexit to the party's nervous right wing; if he were to depart in the future, it would be a signal that May has finally lost the confidence of her MPs. Gauke said. "The challenge is all very well for people to say I wouldn't do this".

The Government went on to explain that it held Brexit discussions with senior officials from the UK Government yesterday afternoon, as the two Governments continue to work closely together going forward.

After the pro-Brexit politician was the star of the successful Leave campaign, it was expected he would make a bid at becoming prime minister when a humiliated David Cameron stood down.

Davis was replaced as Brexit secretary by fellow leaver Dominic Raab.

But the leader of the Scottish Conservatives Ruth Davidson said Mrs May was "correct to accept the Foreign Secretary's resignation".

"I was elected to represent my constituents and the Prime Minister'S team needs to be aware that backbench MPs won't sit idly by and allow a so-called "soft Brexit" with us being half-in, half-out", Andrea Jenkyns wrote in The Daily Telegraph.

The resignation of two British cabinet ministers are matters for the Prime Minster Theresa May, a spokesperson for the Taoiseach has said.

"The Chequers Car Crash crosses Theresa May's own red lines, it certainly fails Labour's six tests and it is a million miles away from the kind of Brexit people thought they were getting - whether they voted Leave or Remain in 2016".

Q: Why hasn't Brexit happened yet?

"I am sorry - and a little surprised - to receive (the letter) after the productive discussions we had at Chequers on Friday, and the comprehensive and detailed proposal which we agreed as a cabinet", May said in her reply to Johnson.

In his resignation letter, Mr Johnson, who spearheaded the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, declared the Brexit dream is "dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

In his resignation letter, Johnson harshly criticised the government's approach to Brexit: "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope".

But she said: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honour the result of the referendum".

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 Conservative lawmakers write a letter requesting one.

Russian diplomats were expelled from 27 countries in a move spearheaded by the United Kingdom, with Mr Johnson claiming that nations were saying "enough is enough" after "years of vexation and provocation" from Moscow.

Davis did not urge other ministers to resign, saying he was in a unique position because the Brexit secretary's job is to sell the government's policy.
